Most of us have the basic items like placemats and paper napkins that are really very practical and get used for everyday dining. You probably have a lot of these items at home already but there are some new trends that can work for everyday and be elevated to dinner party and entertaining at home occasions with the right table accessories. Here are the 5 Spring tableware essentials we recommend for your home this season.
Tip #1 - The Humble Placemat
These placemats are so on trend at the moment. They are made from natural fibre and these particular ones are Water Hyacinth. Imitation ones can be found on the high street but the quality can vary. Tablescaping is all about building layers and height to the place setting and these help achieve that. So versatile they go with so many colours and themes. They are great for everyday dining with the family but can be used in formal dining as well. An absolute must for all year round dining!
Tip #2 - A Set of Spring Linen Napkins
By investing in a set of linen napkins you are always ready for a girlie lunch, Sunday roast with the family and your dinner party guests. It's really just a matter of what colour scheme you go for. Lots of colours to choose from in our newest colour collection, beautiful Spring pastels in purple, pink, green and lemon. But you can add colour to any napkin set to adjust it for this season as mention in last weeks blog post https://www.tableinabox.ie/post/spring-pastel-linen-napkins
Tip #3 - Handy Napkin Holders
Recently I found these napkin holders so simple, practical and pretty, I realised I am constantly going to the kitchen drawers to get the paper napkins out so I can just leave these on the table for easy everyday use. Available in white and brown basket design.
Tip #4 - Pretty Paper Napkins
It goes without saying an absolute essential for anytime of year. A trick is to look for ones that match your nice linen napkins, table runner or tablecloth, that way they can be used for dinner parties in addition to the linen ones to bring different colours and themes to the table. Using them as an accessory to glam up the table setting one of my favourite tricks.
Tip #5 - "Goes with Everything" Ceramics
I love these candlesticks, candleholders and napkins rings. They are just great items to have because no matter what your table linen choices they just go with everything. They are simple but with colourful candles they look amazing. The napkin ring is great for floral or napkins with patterns because of it's simplicity.
Until Next Time
